Abstract
The processes occurring in a burning refuse bed are analyzed to yield estimates for the rate and quantity of combustibles emitted from the bed. Gases of over 14% carbon monoxide content can be released. Methods are then developed to analyze the flow through the furnace. The analysis shows that stratification of the flow and incomplete mixing of fuel and sufficient oxygen-containing gases can occur. Design equations are presented describing the behavior of overfire air or steam jets for mixing, tempering and/or bringing oxygen to the combustible gases. Refuse incinerator overfire air system design methods developed from the above analyses are presented and contrasted with similar design methods for solid fuel bed coal-firing furnaces. (Author)
